BACKGROUND Subacromial impingement syndrome (SAIS) is a painful condition resulting from the entrapment of anatomical structures between the anteroinferior corner of the acromion and the greater tuberosity of the humerus. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the short-term effectiveness of high-intensity laser therapy (HILT) versus ultrasound (US) therapy in the treatment of SAIS. DESIGN The study was designed as a randomized clinical trial. SETTING The study was conducted in a… CONTINUE READING
